JustAdventure by Randy Sluganski

"Hi. Come on in! I am the only one left, your know. Well, except for my little friend mousey. Come closer and I'll tell you a secret. Don't be afraid. I didn't want the game to end so I hid in this little room... What game was I playing? Why, John Saul's Blackstone Chronicles: An Adventure in Terror...."

"Since the very first day that I read the Blackstone Chronicles serialization, I knew that I must one day visit the asylum. Now, thanks to the imagination of John Saul and Bob Bates, my fondest dream has come true..."

"The puzzles in The Blackstone Chronicles run the gamut from inventory-based to timed. If you don't complete the timed sequences within the allotted time frame, then you die. Slowly. Excruciatingly. Exquisitely. My favorite was when I was locked in a dark box and ... well, I don't want to give away the good parts!..."

"Like Peter and the Wolf, every room, every character in The Blackstone Chronicles has its own music. Organ music reverberates from the chapel; frightening music that sounds as if it could have come from a 1960s horror classic like The Haunting..."

"Am I insane? For this game, yes. As concerns other matters ... you be the judge. Enter, if you dare, the horrific world of The Blackstone Chronicles. But beware, for if you run into me, I may then be the one trying to save you. What is that clicking noise? you ask. Oh, that is John Saul. I kidnaped him and put him in the little room that Josh was in so that he could work on the add-ons and sequels for The Blackstone Chronicles. Type faster, John. Come, mousey, we must go now."
